    If having a higher score makes you feel bad, you are definitely not anywhere close to being a psychopath.

    I wouldn't say psychopathy is a mental illness, but a disorder.

    And trust me, no psychopath would ever take offense to this, as ridiculous as this is. I can't imagine a psychopath ever answering honestly enough to score themselves as one :rofl:

    If a psychopath murdered someone, do you think they should receive the same punishment as a non-psychotic murderer? Do you think people should be more empathetic towards them/ more understanding since they can't help being 'that way'?

    I kind of disagree. By the very definition of a psychopath you do have to be at least a little "bad".

    Firstly when you consider that psychopathy falls within Anti-social Personality Disorder so most psychopaths have a criminal record.

    Secondly, when you consider the Psychopathy Checklist items such as pathological lying, parasitic lifestyle, and lack of remorse/ guilt etc.
    It's not glamorous, at least they are complete pains in the arses, at worst they are highly dangerous.

    I don't have ASPD, but I do have BPD which is also cluster B and I consider that to be a mental illness so I would presume that you could feel the same way about ASPD.

    ASPD =/= psychosis. It is possible some people with ASPD also experience psychosis but they aren't the same thing.

    If someone is the perpetrator of a crime and would not have done that crime if that had not had a mental illness then they are often sectioned in a psych ward rather than being sentenced to prison.
